Seasons 52 is a fresh grill and wine bar that offers a seasonally changing menu inspired by the appeal of a local farmer’s market. Seasons 52 sources ingredients at their peak of freshness and uses rustic cooking techniques, like brick-oven roasting and open-fire grilling over oak and mesquite wood to bring out the natural flavors of food. The menu is paired with an ever-changing international collection of more than 100 wines, with 52 available by the glass, along with exceptional signature handcrafted cocktails. Open for lunch and dinner daily, with extended hours on the weekend. If you are searching for a place to host your next group function, Seasons 52 is the perfect setting for your private or semi-private event. We also feature a Chef’s table for smaller groups or more intimate settings. For more information, visit our website at www.Seasons52.com.

Our server Heather was great. The dining room was busy but not noisy, great for conversation. Most of us thoroughly enjoyed our time there and the food. Only issue was too little Parmesan cheese on the flatbread one of us ordered. If I you order it, ask for extra cheese.

My last two dinner occasions (one week apart) did not reach my expectations based on many previous visits. Apps, soups, and salads were all fine but entrees missed the mark a bit with flavor of meat and garnish. Would like to think it is just the current menu but lack of flavor in a steak is not menu related

Excellent from start to finish. Booked a last minute reservation (on a busy Saturday afternoon), and then we showed up 15 minutes early - and they still sat us when we walked in. Server was great, food came out quickly and was amazing. A definite must.

Great service, excellent food, and nice location. This is the perfect spot to grab a bite to eat before a show at Segerstrom Center.

my favorite dish, scallops, came out horribly. no seasoning at all. I found myself adding salt, which I never do. when I asked the waitress for more sauce, she informed me the cook is no longer making this dish with grilled butter and there is. no sauce. they still charged me almost $30 and I didn't eat the scallops other than a sampling. real bummer.

Celebrated my husband’s birthday (did not tell restaurant). We had reservations at 5:30 before show at Segerstrom. We were shown to a table and requested a booth. We were given a booth (although by the kitchen). I saw other couples in booths so not sure if they’d requested with their reservation or not. Server was good and the food was delicious. I tried the Spring Menu and enjoyed. My husband ordered off the regular menu and he loved his filet and lentil soup. Love the portions as not too much! Perfect for before the theatre!

The food is always delicious. I had a salmon salad that was just what I was looking for- a large salmon filet with a lot of salad greens- delicious and healthy. The only thing that could be improved is the dessert selection. They have one type of dessert that comes in multiple flavors- small mousse cups in various flavors that, while tasty, never appeal to me when thinking of dessert. I would prefer a better selection of desserts that includes cake (flourless chocolate or coconut), key line pie, creme brûlée, etc.

Its's an excellent place for lunch, especially in warm weather on the patio.
Servers are always attentive, and the seasonal lunch menu the perfect thing for 4/5 of us!

It was crowded. Noisy. The filet mignon was just okay.
We were seated in a high traffic area, and my chair was bumped into all the time; and I had made reservations well in advance. However, the waitress was great.

I love this place but this time we went in a Sunday afternoon. It was not busy at all. We are in our 50’s .
We were sat next to a table of 6 with 3 toddlers under 4. By the time our food came we were jumping out of our skin. We felt bad asking to move. We didn’t want to offend anyone but that was a mistake.
We feel the seaters and server should have taken the lead on this one. At one point The server asked if everything was ok and I asked if they had ear plugs. I think she should have moved us. About 10 min later the manager came to ask how things were and we said Food great service great. “But “
Why would you seat us next to this loud screaming table. All of the servers knew they were loud and crying children is not what I want to hear on my only day off spending $70.00 for a salad and flat bread.
NO CRYING CHILDREN !!! Next time we will just ask to be moved! Seasons have a clue train your seaters to observe the situation. If the restaurant isn’t busy don’t put old people like us near crying children.

Food and Service was excellent. It was extremely loud inside there which made conversation with my wife challenging to say the least. Couldn’t even hear the server. We were placed in a room with large parties and that may have contributed to the noise level.

I live in LA and a few of my best girlfriends live in the OC, and when we get together to have brunch and shop, we always choose Seasons 52. The portions are just right, the ingredients are always fresh and seasonal, and the taste never disappoints. Definitely have to share a flatbread to start! And selecting a dessert never feels like you are breaking your diet — perfectly bite sized and so worth the little splurge!
